At home: Federica Palacios


Every now and then a space comes along that is just so perfect you'd move in right away, just as is. This, to me, is one of those spaces. The beach home of designer Federica Palacios nestled on the Mediterranean coast seems an oasis of calm, and a perfect example of the outdoors being reflected in. All in white, punctuated with black and vibrant royal blue, the interior is definitely a visual vacation for the eyes.









Sometimes the simplest statement can have the strongest impact. This hallway definitely carries the feeling of modern drama. Bold, eye-catching but not overly complicated. While people often refer to opulence or very embellished spaces as dramatic, I find the simplicity seen here in this hallway, the most impactful.

SH - the bright blue totally has an ultra cool edge to it!

Tina - the hallway was one of my favourite parts too. I instantly started thinking of where I could use this idea...

wow! so beautiful!!! i wouldn't love it as a home to live in everyday because it would be too much white and boring for me...but as a vacation home... this is awesome because it's very calming and RELAXING to the eyes and mind. my favorite is the BLUE accents because that's my favorite color! i agree with you about the simple hallway making a dramatic statement... how cool would it be if they copied that effect on their
carpet
too?!
